With correct maintenance and regular check-ups, dental bridges can last anywhere from between 5-15 years.
The darkened lines are caused by low-quality dental crowns. The metal restorations of the crown are exposed near the gum line. The gum line becomes exposed forming what looks like a black line. Replacement of the crown is often the only way to get rid of the darkened line.
- High in sugar meals and drinks: Though they are artificial, the natural teeth adjacent to the bridge may decay and that restricts the longevity and function of the bridge.
- Hard foods: We make our bridges from the highest quality but consistent biting of hard foods may weaken the bridge.
- Drinks and foods such as coffee, wine and berries can cause discolouration to the bridge
Anyone who has decaying teeth or needs a root canal treatment are a great candidate for a dental crown.
Dental implants, inlays, onlays, veneers could be all alternatives to crowns. We recommend you visit your dentist and discuss with them what the best solution is. Consider your goals, needs and budget when thinking about what you need.
Unlike bridges, your dental implants are permanently fixed. However, bridges may be a more optimal solution if you have one more missing teeth next to each other. Visit our dentists for an initial consultation so you can be sure whats’s best for you.
You can receive a crown on the same day. You will need to keep yourself occupied for a couple of hours as we design your crown. We recommend you keep your whole day free from any commitments.
